The war rages on between Gemma and Hallie in the second installment of the Broken Hearts and Revenge series.
After the humiliating events on the 4th of July, Gemma's trying to handle the fact that Hallie knew who she was all along, and she was the one who stole Teddy from her. Gemma vows revenge, but things get more complicated than she planned. Ford, Gemma’s long-time crush, has arrived in the Hamptons cuter than ever. Josh is refusing to speak to her after she lied to him, and Teddy is playing champion to his beloved Marsh Warbler (in Gemma's backyard, no less).
Gemma and Hallie find themselves locked in an escalating revenge cycle. Just when Gemma thinks she has the upper hand, the biggest bombshell of all is dropped. And it’s one that threatens to change her life forever. This exciting sequel to Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things To Mend will leave you begging for the third installment. (Goodreads)
If you’ve not read the first book in this series, stop here. This does contain some information that is from the first book!
Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served picks up right where the previous book leaves off. Gemma now knows that Hallie knew who she was the whole time, and Hallie thinks that she has finally won. That, of course, is not the case at all. The story is filled with Gemma and Hallie antics, some that you will find pretty funny, and some that are just way too cruel.
In the first book we were introduced to Josh, who was the love interest for Gemma in the story. In this book, we are introduced to Ford, and I just love him so much! I’m not used to changing teams halfway through a series, but I really love Ford, and some things that happen with Josh that make me kind of feel like he’s not exactly what I thought he was in the first book, and that was a total turn-off.
As I mentioned in my review of the first book, these books are like watching a train wreck. You want to look away, but you just can’t do it! I read this book in just a few hours time, and now I need the next book in my hands ASAP. Especially where this book leaves off, I’m dying to know what’s going to happen with Gemma, Hallie and the rest of the crew.
Overall; Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served Cold was an excellent addition to the Broken Hearts & Revenge series. If you like lots of drama, you’re definitely going to enjoy Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things To Mend & Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served Cold. Now that I’m all caught up, I will be impatiently waiting to get my hands on the third book in the series. Check these out!!
